I received three account member removal forms today from three creditors. I filled them out quickly, had my wife sign them and then mailed them the same day today. I'm trying to improve her credit score - I don't want to drag her name and credit score down as she doesn't deserve that.
Three other creditors just removed my wife's name off my accounts while I was on the phone with them and made the request. I'm the primary and I had previously added my wife as a secondary signer - that was during our good times when I could support the both of us and my kids on my salary alone. We're working our way back to those days again - 2008 looks better.
One of the things I've started doing is attending church again. I've been going to a local Christian church for about two months straight now. It helps to bring me some peace of mind. In these times of my duress I now know why headstones list Rest In Peace on them.
